The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) under the supervision of managing director Wasim Khan has started preparing for Sri Lankan team’s tour to Pakistan in September.

Khan held the first meeting at PCB’s headquarters regarding the tour.

MD called all the departments’ head in the meeting and asked them to maximize their efforts to plan things strongly for upcoming tours.

According to the sources, the tickets for the matches will go on sell in mid-September.

The meeting also discussed sponsorship and logo for the series.

MD is confident to make this event successful by providing all possible facilities to the fans and players.

It is pertinent to mention here that Sri Lankan team will travel to Pakistan on September 25 to play three ODIs and as many T20Is in Karachi and Lahore, respectively.

Earlier, PCB and Sri Lanka Cricket on Friday announced to swap upcoming matches of the split series in Pakistan.

The ODIs and the T20Is will now be played from 27 September to 9 October while the Tests will be held in December.

According to the original program, Pakistan was scheduled to host Sri Lanka for two World Test Championship matches in October before Sri Lanka returns for three ODIs and three T20Is in late December.

The decision to swap matches was made following a ‘phone discussion between PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani and SLC President Shammi Silva on Friday.

The Sri Lanka cricket team will arrive in Karachi on 25 September where it will play three ODIs on 27 and 29 September and 2 October.

Lahore will host three T20Is on 5, 7 and 9 October after which the visitors will fly home on 10 October.

PCB Chairman Mr. Ehsan Mani said: “The PCB is pleased with the outcome of its discussions with Sri Lanka Cricket, which has supported Pakistan in its efforts and endeavors for the complete revival of international cricket.

The tour for limited overs matches will also provide Sri Lanka with an even better understanding of the ground situation before discussing schedule of the Tests.

The upcoming matches will end the long await of the Pakistan cricket fans and supporters to watch modern day stars from both sides live in action.

This is something that will contribute immensely to our revamped domestic cricket structure.
